About

This Social Development Practice course from University College London (UCL) offers a critical approach to 'people-centred' development, addressing the challenges for promoting well-being and equitable citizenship in the context of social diversity and globalisation, particularly in urban contexts.

Overview

Programme overview

The MSc in Social Development Practice from University College London (UCL) explores processes of social change, mobilisation and development that can generate greater equity and wellbeing for people in developing contexts. It explores different approaches through which diverse and marginalised groups gain access to rights, resources and recognition.

The course has two main objectives:

  • to give students a solid grounding in social analysis skills and perspectives, rooted in social theory around identity, inequality and social change processes
  • to provide an understanding of the role of the social development practitioner, and of how development interventions can best support the citizenship claims of people in the Global South

Learning is cemented by practice engagement in contexts reflective of real-life practice, characterised by diversity, inequality and conditions of uncertainty.
